Salon Nights are open to all members, no registration required. They are free evenings of informal critique and feedback where members can bring in their art projects or research for discussion. Whether you wish to present or not, you should come out to add to the discussion and see what other artists are up to in their studios. Each session is hosted by a different local or visiting cultural worker who will facilitate the discussion and weigh in with their own experience. Courtney R. Thompson will be leading the discussion after introducing her research interests and professional practice. Please RSVP.
Courtney R. Thompson is an independent arts professional living in Winnipeg, Manitoba. She regularly writes for ArtSlant and Art in Print and has presented her research at symposia across North America. She graduated from the Art History, Theory & Criticism program at The School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 2011, winning the Fellowship for her department. Her research addresses spatial practices and slippages between art, architecture and the visual culture of dwelling.
